The latest Hillary Clinton ad–which I saw while on vacation in the mountains–targets Trump voters, playing on his mocking of a disabled reporter. That’s an old story, but Clinton played on a mother’s love of her autistic child.
“My son Max can’t live in Trump world.” Very powerful, except for one fact: if autism was diagnosable in the womb, Max wouldn’t be alive in Hillary world either. Ask any Down’s Syndrome mother.
Down’s Syndrome is now detectable in the womb via a simple blood test. In the U.K., that’s an extinction-level event for those children.
Around 90 per cent of pregnancies that involve the condition end in a termination. In 2014, 693 abortions were carried out for this reason – a jump of 34 per cent since 2011. The rise is blamed on increased access to blood tests via private clinics. American campaigners warn of the risk of “extinction”. In Denmark, the head of a midwife association blandly told a newspaper: “When you can discover almost all the foetuses with Down Syndrome, then we are approaching a situation in which almost all of them will be aborted.”
Trump is a hedonist, a cretin, a lecherous old man, and a cheap narcissistic liar. But for Clinton to claim that somehow her Brave New World where Planned Parenthood’s eugenics-based program for the advancement of the human race is somehow a better alternative, is beyond the pale.
A vote for Hillary is a vote to drive certain human beings to extinction, as subhumans. At least the people Trump mocks were allowed to live (a small but significant difference, especially to the ones being mocked).
That being said, I’ll flip the argument on those who say not voting for Trump is a vote for Hillary. In swing states where Trump could win and is behind, that logic might work, but in states where Hillary is ahead, not voting for her is really a vote for Trump. The binary logic works both ways.
I’m not voting for either of them.
